I weaned down and finally came off of Mirtazapine. It's been three days. I don't feel very good, which I expected, but, is a vaginal yeast infection a withdrawal symptom also?

    I haven't read anything about causing yeast infections. A question for you: 1) did you gain weight while taking mirtzapine 2) how long for your total weaning and 3) did you lose weight while weaning.

    Hope you feel better soon. I am going to start weaning tonight. Have been taking 15 mg once a day will start tonight with 7.5 mg. I have gained so much weight (25+ lbs, I am short with small frame) and am really hoping to shed this weight quickly!

      Hi. I was taking two 15 mg pills for eight months. I was given these pills to treat nausea and messed up stomach. Guess there was study that it helps that. My GI doctor prescribed them. I gained 30 pounds. Thought I am ready to go off of them. Started with half the dose at 15 mg for one week and then cut that in half for one week and then just quit. I just went to see my physiatrist on Saturday and he said I could just stop cold turkey that I didn't need to wean off of them. My stomach got messed up and I felt nausea. Seems to be getting better. I was tempted to go back on them. I've already lost 7 pounds. Just did not have the munchies anymore. It's been six days and I think Ive gotten all of it out of me. But not all.

      Hi. I widdled down to half of a 15 mg. Definitely felt weird. It's been six days with no Remeron. My physiatrist said I could stop cold turkey. Everything I read, says to wean down.
